Learn more about Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel has several tools to allow you to perform complex calculations and get the most out of your data, performing advanced and accurate analyses. But gathering and sorting through your databases can be a long and tedious job. That's where Power Query comes in! Integrated into Microsoft Excel, it allows you, thanks to its own interface, to define your data sources, collect them and start transforming them to get results.

Once your data is prepared, always use the Power Pivot tool in Microsoft Excel to create relationships between your data. Then create data models that you can process directly in Power Pivot. The application allows you to modify large amounts of data from different sources, perform information analysis quickly, and share analyses very simply.

Finally, to save time and be even more efficient, you can create macros in Microsoft Excel to record and then automate the processes that you repeat regularly.
